  • You don't have to write a lot, my 4 year old daughter loved already also. Museum super comfortable, full of shows with great interaction. Super price cheap, some if you are resident. Great plan to spend a day, you can come and go as many times you want. I repeat, WILL not repent

  • The Museum is located in the Santa Catalina district in the North of Las Palmas, next to the Puerto de la Luz and the Parque de Santa Catalina. We can here everything touch and do interesting us experiment. In the Museum there is a lot of interaktrywnych exposure, thanks to which you can know how is electricity, how the internet works or incorporate the pilot or servant of the air traffic control tower. There is a 3D cinema, in which we can watch movies about dinosaurs and archaeological excavations. Families with children should be required to visit him. The Museum is open from Tuesday to Sunday from 10.00 to 20.00. The Museum is closed on Mondays, 1 and 6 January, 1 May and 25 December. Adult tickets cost 5 euro, for young people up to 18 years old and seniors over 65 years 3.5 euro and admission for children up to 6 years is free of charge. From Maspalomas can be reached by bus line 1, which takes you to San Telmo station and then bus line for example. 19 or 20.

  • Museum is very beautiful, has many interesting things to children but many of the attractions do not work or say that you need them to use someone at the Museum but there is no one. They should fix that because the site is magnificent.

  • Climb in the cockpit of a real jet fighter, see what quarters are like on the International Space Station, learn about engines, rockets, renewables, remarkable animals and more! A great place for families with everything available in English as well as Spanish (with the exception of the planetarium voiceover), if you love STEM you have to visit.
  • Perfect for the whole family, an entry ticket valid the whole day so you can come and go as you please, there really is something for everyone here and despite it being relatively small it kept us entertained most of the day. There is a planetarium with a show in English and we watched two 3D films in English, and had a ride on the robotic arm thing which can be set to anything between gentle and wild. Highly recommend this museum.
  • A lot of interactive exhibits and everything is included in the entrance fee. The robocoaster is extremely fun and the staff very friendly. Only negative impression were that a couple of exhibits were not working properly.
  • Great place for the smaller children - especially because you could touch and try everything. Price and experience is compareable..
  • Interesting exhibition mainly about physics in work, definitely worth the price. Only negative is the broken exhibition item's in a few place
